1 International Social Science Research in Africa, Asia, and Latin America: A Multidisciplinary Seminar on Concept, Design, and Praxis SOC 890 (Sec 2) and ANP Fall 2014 First Seminar Meeting: Proposal Writing Workshop, August 28, :00-7:30 pm, International Center Third Floor Open to everyone. Regular Seminar: Thursdays 6:00-8:30 pm 201 International Center (beginning Sep 4) Description of seminar: This is a seminar for U.S. and international graduate students in the social sciences and related fields who are planning to conduct thesis, predissertation, or dissertation field research abroad, especially focused on Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, Eurasia, and the Middle East. It also is useful for those who wish to incorporate social science methods to address international human issues that arise in research in applied/professional fields such as agriculture, resource development, communications, education, and health. Many graduates of this seminar have been successful in winning funding awards. All of the work of the seminar is designed to assist the candidate to write one or more successful funding proposals to obtain support for research abroad; therefore, the seminar begins with an initial 2.5 hour workshop on proposal writing for international research. The seminar focuses on three stages in planning, obtaining funding for, and conducting international field research: (1) The concept stage involves specifying a research topic, searching the literature for theoretical and methodological frameworks, identifying previous empirical research in the field, and developing a concept paper. The concept paper summarizes the initial ideas and framework for conducting the study as well as the motivations and competencies of the researcher to conduct the research. It can be replaced with a completed funding proposal. (2) The design stage is the stage in which the initial ideas articulated in the concept paper are expanded into the component sections that can be tailored into individual proposals for submission to national funding sources (Fulbrights, NSF, SSRC, Wenner-Gren, Spencer, Ford, and other sources). (3) The praxis stage involves preparing for and conducting research in the field. Throughout the seminar, participants prepare draft proposals, present them, and receive peer-review comment and assistance from seminar participants and the instructor. Enrollment: You may enroll for one to three credits, and the seminar requirements will vary accordingly. This seminar is regularly offered under the following seminar numbers:.
